Here, we’ll take a quick look at some of the most popular cosmetic surgeries…
The Boob Job
Thanks to the number of celebrities who have openly undergone breast surgeries, the boob job continues to be one of the most well-known and sought after cosmetic surgeries for women of all shapes, sizes, and ages. The goal of breast surgery is ultimately to alter the appearance of the breasts, whether that be by lifting the breasts, inserting implants to increase the size of the breasts, or removing breast tissue to reduce the size of the breasts. Previously, the most popular form of breast surgery was the boob job, wherein the surgeon lifts the breasts and inserts an implant to alter the shape of the breast and increase its size; today, however, surgeries to reduce the size of the breast or improve the shape of the breast without using implants are becoming more popular. Breast lift surgery involves lifting the existing tissue without inserting any additional implants or overtly altering the shape of the breast; the result is a more natural effect. Breast surgeries to reduce the amount of breast tissue are also incredibly popular, even amongst men, so much so that some surgeons specialise in this type of procedure, with surgeons such as Gary L Ross performing several of these per week.
The nose job
The nose is the central feature of the face and arguably the most eye-catching; it’s no surprise, therefore, that surgery to improve the shape and appearance of the nose is so popular amongst men and women. Rhinoplasty surgery can be performed to alter the appearance of the nostrils, the tip of the nose, or the bridge of the nose – or to alter all three! Nose surgery is usually performed with the intention of reducing the size of the nose or improving the symmetry of the face.
The facelift is a surgery that’s typically sought after by women looking to reduce the appearance of signs of aging. The surgery involves tightening the skin around the face to give the appearance of a lift. As a result of the surgery, wrinkles are reduced, and the skin has a more taut and youthful appearance. A full facelift affects all parts of the face, but partial facelifts focusing on only the upper or lower half of the face can also be performed.
The tummy tuck
Popularised by the media and celebrities, the tummy tuck is most women’s ideal surgery, particularly after pregnancy. The surgery involves reducing the amount of excess skin around the tummy area and tightening the abdominal muscles (the medical term for this kind of surgery is abdominoplasty). The surgery is typically performed in conjunction with liposuction surgery, during which fat is removed from the area.
